I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

Julie & Aaron Cabitto's 13th Anniversary

This is a slightly different post, to notate my history for a moment. Today is Aaron & my 13th anniversary. Here's a picture last year for our 12th anniversary, to match my profile picture. I'm not in leg braces this year, but it is a lot of work to keep them at bay.

The last 6 years, we go away overnight to visit a historic & beautiful place, not too far away. We check out the local history, local food, and find good places to go for walks. On our 8th anniversary we went to Mt. Jackson, VA (Shenandoah's); 9th Orange, VA; 10th Washington DC; 11th Charlottesville, VA, including Monticello; 12th Richmond, VA; this year, 13th, we went to Annapolis, MD this past weekend.

Last year the Richmond Capitol was newly restored, and this year, the Annapolis capitol just reopened last month. I'm really glad Aaron loves history, museums, art and good food. Cause that's what we do on our trips. And I'm glad I have my best friend to share my favorite things with. Here is a picture of us this year, to the left. I got a fancy beaded pink purse for a nice date we went on last year. I normally like simple things, but I thought this purse looked like Cinderella going to the ball with Prince Charming. Aaron jokingly told me we weren't going to a ball. And I said a date that was two days long and no housework is definitely Cinderella going to the ball! So I carried my fancy pink ball purse with me the whole time :) I love my Aaron!
